The Dangerous Harpist

Songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and comedienne Ursula Burns has been smashing the stereo-typical image of the harp for 25 years by performing and touring the world through the mediums of Music,  Theatre, Circus and Comedy.  Burns has invented her own wild style of playing and strong captivating live performance in her solo shows. Ursula accidentally fell into comedy when she won the Irish Musical Comedy Awards 2012 and since has been touring her solo shows. As a veteran of Edinburgh festival she  got nominated for the Malcolm Hardee Award for comic originality.  Burns has 6 solo albums and a wealth of music composed for childrens theatre. A diverse and compelling artist who is not afraid to take risks and push the harp to places it has never dared to venture………….

Mandala Spiritual Art by Patricia Fitzgerald

All of my work, from the artwork, the meditations, the books and to the spaces I hold at workshops or retreats has one common thread which is my deepest wish to carve out a space for you to connect to your deeper, higher self. A space for you to find your centre, your stillness and your clarity. To offer to you a space that gives you greater vision and empowerment, connecting you to your deeper self and to a power greater than your self, regardless of your religious beliefs or none. That can be through meditating on an artwork or limited edition print, through doing a meditation or through reading my books or blog posts. It could be coming along to a workshop or retreat. I believe that this held space is hugely important for us in a world that is so fast-paced and often relentless. I offer you spaciousness to yield to a quieter yin experience.

Caoivín Music

Imbas

Caoivín is an Irish neo-traditional musician currently based in Dublin. Born into a musical family, he began playing traditional Irish music at the tender age of 5 and spent the majority of his early childhood summers travelling to and from various different fleadhs and music weeks. In his late teens and early twenties, Caoivín began to develop an interest in a number of genres outside of the traditional Irish music realm, in particular various forms of dance and electronic music. Caoivín’s creations are influenced by the range of styles which he has been exploring from that point up until now, while being rooted at the same time to the long unbroken lineage of traditional music on which he was reared.

Cailleach Podcast

Imbas

I have been dreaming into this creation for a long time. Was I waiting for the most auspicious time? I’m not sure but it seems to have arrived!​ I was particularly inspired by others who had interview me for their podcasts (Maureen Howard’s Eco Living In Action and Finn Wendle’s Regenerative Livelihood.) It seems that even with fairly basic technical skills and equipment I could get going.

As I send it out into the multimediaverse my intention is that some or all of its elements will form their own connections for an audience that also hopes to be a part of the regeneration of life on earth.

There are 8 threads: Interviews, Story Time, Identity, Well of Being, Eco-System Thinking, Mediations, Ireland the Ancestors, & Hands On. There are 8 release dates on Celtic seasonal festivals.

In late 2020, I am recording and editing by the fireside in An Seanteachín, like a Seanchaí I am telling tales for these times or perhaps for the future ones, like my granddaughter Violet who was born in 2019, for her they might be tales of long ago.

Inspired and supported by my husband, my children, my granddaughter and my amazing wider family, friends community and interviewees on this podcast.

Cruthaigh

Imbas

Cruthaigh means ‘to create’ in Irish and was brought about to inspire healing through creativity under the Spiral as the symbol for change in Ireland.

Creativity, inspiration and healing are three major elements to healthy individuals and communities and Cruthaigh intends on making that common knowledge around Ireland. It is very important for individuals to know that change must happen within themselves before the world will change. As above, so below, as within, so without.

By Cruthaigh becoming a nationally recognised entity that blurs the world’s of the ancient and the modern it is is destined that our lovely land of Ireland will once again become a festival of love and craic forevermore.

Is file mé

here to fill a
function in the tribe,
to call out the imperial side
to capture
the imagination of a nation
with nets of silver
to sit in waiting
for God’s cast offs
and metaphors
and answers to
the ‘what fors?’
to invoke and provoke
and get my spoke
into this celtic wheel
and with a bleeding heart 
make you feel
with the spoken word
make it real

Treibh

Imbas

‘Treibh {Tribe} is an experimental music project releasing music throughout 2021 honouring the Solstices, Equinoxes and Fire Festivals on an album entitled ‘Roth na Bliana.’ {Wheel of the Year’} The goal of the venture being to explore Irish folklore, paganism and history throughout the year with music and art.

Featuring three core members from various musical and creative backgrounds, Adam Robert Martin, Martin Byrne and Amy Aoife McCausland, The album will feature traditional and some not so traditional instruments, with bilingual voice as well as some additional guest collaborators along the way.

Each piece of music is released on or around each Quarter Day and Fire Festival with artwork added to a central Wheel piece over the course of the year. The album will feature additional experimental ‘Threads’. These are more raw, experimental pieces, some improvised, some reworked, that tie each of the main pieces of music together to form a cohesive body of work.

‘Roth na Bliana’ is available as ‘pay what you like’ on Bandcamp and each time we release a track, those who have paid for the album get these new tracks free. Each track can also be streamed or purchased separately.

Hopefully by the end of 2021, the wheel will be complete and in 2022 we hope to take Treibh live to perform ‘Roth na Bliana’ for audiences.’
